Rating-Matinee' I, Spy (Based on the tv show of the same name, which I have never seen) is the story of a special agent and a famous boxer who are forced to work together in order to recover a stolen stealth plane. The story is beyond stupid, and the dialogue is sort of a mixed bag. So why do I like this movie? It's sense of fun is why, which is because it moves at a "Fast but not too fast" pacing. There is always something comedic, action packed, or a little bit of…
Almost done with my website for it to be truly open! This review is my take on the film score to Disney's Mulan, composed by Jerry Goldsmith, his last ever nomination for an Academy Award for Best Original Score. If you ask me, it's one of the best he's written.
With the remake of Total Recall coming out soon, I look back with one of my favorite scores ever by the late, great, Jerry Goldsmith. The score for the remake might not have the elements from the original score, but if they do, that would be awesome!
What is arguably the most iconic Hollywood film of the modern era is back once again to rake in more money. But what is it that has made this film so massive in its impact? It's a movie about an event that almost no one living today ever experienced, it's a James Cameron film without nuclear weapons, Terminators,…
"And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when several superhero stories found themselves united in a single article. On that day, 'Superhero Stories' was born - to contain the film and TV news no single blog post could withstand! Heed the call, then - for now...
It’s Christmas time and what’s the true meaning of Christmas? Video games of course! Yes, the giving and receiving of video games. Alright, fine. It’s also got something to do with the birth of a baby a couple of thousand years ago or something. I don’t know, I’m an atheist. Still, video games play a lot into the Christmas experience, especially for anyone in my age bracket. Who doesn’t remember receiving a NES at Christmas? Well, I don’t because I have a shitty memory but I did own one and I’m… Continue

As a straight, white male I don’t think I can claim that I have ever been oppressed. In fact in the entire history of my people you might have to go all the way back to the Roman invasion of Britain to even attempt to make a claim of oppression and a fairly flimsy claim it would be too. What hardships our people faced when the Romans brought us roads, sanitation and mosaics. To be fair though, they did call us wild savages and laughed when we painted our faces blue. That had to sting.… Continue

Today sees the beginning of a new recurring segment on Cinepub, Last Year In Film. The concept is fairly simple, watching and reviewing all the Oscar and Razzie nominated films of 2008. And I do mean all of them. It’s going to be a massive undertaking and I hope that I can manage to pull it off before the end of the year. With that in mind let’s begin with the backwards-aging, Gumpesque saga known as The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.
Directed by David Fincher and starring Brad… Continue

Released as a straight to DVD feature this latest Futurama epic is a mixed bag. My main gripe? Wasn’t as funny as Benders Big Score, with too many smilers and not enough ‘laugh out loud crap your pants in hysterics’ moments however it was less gimmicky. The culprit of the smilers were animation mock ups released on… Continue
